CLOSED: Tumbling Flower Beetle?

Lucketts, VA(Zone 7a)

Is this some species of Tumbling Flower Beetle? If so, can anyone tell me which one? Thanks.

Greenthumb, it sure looks like it with the pintail! Sorry I don't know which species.

It is indeed a tumbling flower beetle, but I would hesitate to make a specific i.d. from this image - there are species in the genera Mordella and Mordellaria that can have similar appearances...
